Track Name: Morning
I am the next of kin
So I thought I'd step in
I had a dream last night
About a panda bear

All I have
Is a funny face
I'm black and white
And I live alone

There's a path to the river
And it twists through the hills
I saw a sheep there lying
Lying dead on the road
And it gave me the chills

Where do you
Go when you leave your life;
When you breathe your last,
breath into the night?
Track Name: Radio On
Radio
Help send me off
Starlight
Help send me off
I want these thoughts suppressed
I want my mind to rest
I can't sleep when you're gone

I can only sleep with the radio on

I just can't relax
and I don't know just what to do

so

Radio
Won't you comfort me?
I am sick
and it's her I need
I want these thoughts suppressed
I want my mind to rest
I can't sleep when you're gone

I can only sleep with the radio on

I just can't relax
and I don't know just what to do
I just can't relax
and I don't know just what to do

No I don't know
oh well.

What's it like in the sun? What's it like in the sun? What's it like in the sun? Get it on, Get it on, Get it on.

Radio
Came back to me
It's a sign of the times
That you're all I need
You floated in
I drifted off

I can only sleep with the radio on

I just can't relax
and I don't know just what to do

No I don't know
oh well.
Track Name: Leaves
It's a natural straight
It's a natural line
It's a natural climate
To find yourself dying in

Was I too late?
Take the mud off my hands
Can I collect
The stones and all the leaves

Was it a bad time
To be in that room?
Unnatural talking
With my natural friends

It's a natural straight
It's a natural line
It's a natural climate
To find yourself dying in

Was I too late?
Take the mud off my hands
Can I collect
The stones and all the leaves
Track Name: Water Vole
Sticker tape
On the radio
And eat a Mars bar
Going ninety miles an hour
You can't explain
The rush of the forest as it's torn up
Under the wheel
I don't expect
The industry
To thank me
'cos I'm just doing my bit
To help conquer nature
Like a good citizen
I don't waste time
No I don't
Waste

Water vole
You don't care
At all

And Skylark
You don't
Give a fuck

Hey little field mouse
You have something to share
But I don't care
Track Name: Hungry Dog
You've got no freedom,
Got no Ideas.
You're feeling strange,
Yeah, run off your fears

Hungry Dog
Don't bite your friends
Hungry Dog
Don't bite your friends

Lala la lala la lala la lala la la
Lala la lala la lala la lala la la

I'll sit here on my own
And I don't want them coming around because
I need you
To let me in

Waste away,
That's what you did
Well I'm so tired
That's just what you said

Hungry Dog
Don't bite your friends
Hungry Dog
Don't bite your friends

Lala la lala la lala la lala la la
Lala la lala la lala la lala la la

I'll sit here on my own
And I don't want them coming around because
I need you
To let me in
Track Name: China
You live
In a house
It's by the river
It's on stilts
You don't
Live alone
You have a friend
He's always over
He sits in
Leaves

Where did you come from?
Where did you come from?
Where did you come from?
Where did you come from?
Where did you go?
Track Name: Hurricane
I fell backwards when I heard somebody say
That you've been swiftly carried away
Hurricane took you off into the sea
And nothing of yours was left behind

I shouldn't still be doing this
I shouldn't be something I'm not

I fell down a flight of stairs
And threw myself right over a ledge
But it was a short way to fall
Yet it was a long long time to think

I shouldn't still be doing this
I shouldn't be something I'm not

I remember when I flew right through the air
Nothing could stop me but I didn't care
Thinking about you and your Hurricane
And all of the things that he can do

I shouldn't still be doing this
I shouldn't be something I'm not
I shouldn't still be doing this
I shouldn't be something I'm not
I shouldn't still be doing this
I shouldn't be something I'm not
I shouldn't still be doing this
I shouldn't be something I'm not
Track Name: Walden Pegasus
Walden:

It's great to live in a wooden house, it keeps me warm. By the pond there's a funny man he lives alone. Dark nights and cold days and black skies. One night when I drank too much and I had to go to bed, I dreamt of a horse with golden wings and a mane like feathers. I saw it fall apart and drift into the night. I saw it fall apart, drifting out of sight.

Walden Pegasus
Floating away
Walden Pegasus
Taking off again

Pegasus:

Drifting rolling white waves cracking up against the breakers deadly sun showers light-fixed pictures in the morning sending wooden carvings through the ocean next to nothing soft moon wanes heavy breath of horses heaving howling hurling rain is falling hard against the cold wall drifting further strengthen bridges bellowed gales and fire crack wood on wood on wood in flames and ashes turn to solid stone to build the mountains cracking granite on hard ground and turn to seep the water flowing over flowers wilting softly mountain dancing hanging baskets burning in the sundown shadow growing in the steps beneath the propped up roof top patter gently soft rain falling chucking in synthetic jagged lines around the hands who grasping tightly in a circle growing bigger never ending cosmos sending spirals to the darkened corners lighting up themselves and seeming bolder growing bigger by the minute time is passing time has passed and it is done giving in to the thought of an abyss so sinking through the flowing sand of folded arms and sun scorched desert time is slipping and to the cosmos it gives itself again a mirror to the stretch of light that goes forever.
The great bear sits alone in the ink swell neither
